Thread Name: Tech: Long lived light bulb
Subject: Tech: Long lived light bulb
The light bulb in our loft blew last weekend when I was up there. Nothing unusual in that you might say. It was in the loft when we bought the house in 1972 which means that it has lasted almost 30 years. I suspect not a record, but certainly a very long life for a tungsten filament bulb.

It's now been replaced by a cfl; technology marches on.

The light bulb's gone
It was working yesterday
But to day it's gone
The light bulb's gone and blown
I went into the loft and pulled the cord
There was no light, it was dark.
